Vinetree Honghegu Tented Resort
As the popularity of Yuanyang rice terraces skyrocket and tourists flock into the area, Vinetree Honghegu Tented Resort is an off-the-beaten eco retreat where you can truly immerse in the local culture and visit the less-known UNESCO rice terraces.
Escape the standard Yuanyang tourist trail into the quaint Shitou village
Exclusive size of only 17 tents guarantee seclusion
Picturesque scenery overlooking the Jiayin Rice Terrace
Visit the adjacent Samaba, the largest among the UNESCO-listed Honghe Hani Rice Terraces
In Vinetree Honghegu Tented Resort, abandoned buildings from a former Hani village are beautifully restored into a modern tent directly overlooking into the beautiful Jiayin Rice Terrace, which offers beautiful landscapes across different seasons. A key feature of Jiayin Rice Terrace is the cherry blossoms and palms which are planted around the area, which bursts into a symphony of colours especially from February to March.
There are 17 tent yards located within the property, as well as bath pools and Lezongshe Restaurant which serves Asian cuisine.
Other attractions around the area include the Samaba Rice Terrace, which is the biggest of the UNESCO-listed Honghe Hani Terrace. The rice terrace uniquely blends into the scenery of the surrounding forest, river and the adjacent Suhong Village.
